The Energy Working Group supports requests covering areas of analysis, planning, finance, and implementation, as well as measurement, reporting, and verification of climate compatible action in the energy sector.
  • Peer learning, training, and knowledge sharing opportunities are offered to practitioners tasked with planning and implementing LEDS in the energy sector. This component includes the development and dissemination of energy LEDS online support materials such as toolkits, advisory notes, and policy papers; the design and execution of webinars; and the organization of energy sector sessions and in-person workshops at global and regional LEDS events.
  • Assisting in LEDS GP efforts to diversify fundraising resources has been identified by the LEDS GP Secretariat as a priority action area across working groups and regional platforms. This effort is critical in supporting the continued development of capacity building, technical assistance, knowledge sharing, and collaborative activities across the Partnership.
